In the world of indie gaming, ‘Among Us’ is a star that shot into fame, and this week it celebrates its five-year milestone. To honour this auspicious event, the crafty brains at Innersloth have bestowed upon us an update with some tweaks, bug fixes, and a delightful collaboration that’s got social media users buzzing with excitement.
Pusheen Joins the Among Us Party: The New Cosmicube
Now, don’t get it wrong, Among Us might have turned five, but the real party didn’t start until 2020. Launched in 2018, it was a game mainly under the radar, keeping a low profile like an imposter among the crew. Yet, the COVID-19 pandemic shuffled the deck. Homebound gamers, their twitchy fingers eager for new content, found solace in Among Us, and the game’s popularity erupted like a supernova. Its cleverly designed social deduction gameplay, replete with charming crewmates and sly imposters, captivated fans of games like Werewolf, skyrocketing Among Us into the indie gaming hall of fame. So, when the game clocked its fifth year, Innersloth pulled out the party hats with lots to cheer about.
Among the confetti, we find a heart-warming collaboration with Pusheen, the internet’s favourite chubby cat. This purr-fect partnership introduced a Pusheen Cosmicube, a sweet £9.99/$9.99 bundle (or 110 stars) of joy that gives players access to a plethora of Pusheen-themed goodies. A Pusheen pet, a complete Pusheen skin, a delightful Cat Nap hat, and fresh nameplates are up for grabs. However, keep in mind, the Pusheen party is a limited-time gig, running only until September 13th, 2023.
Free Goodies and a Twitch Stream: Birthday Treats for Among Us Players
Alongside the Pusheen revelries, the game greets its players with a fresh face – a revamped menu. Players will now find the menu options neatly tucked on the left, with a window view dominating the right. Your friend list and player ID have moved to the top. Additionally, Among Us lovers who log in on June 15th will receive a free cosmetic to celebrate the game’s actual birthday. The Innersloth team will also be hosting a live stream on Twitch on June 15th at 12:00 PM Pacific/3:00 PM Eastern.
While Pusheen’s adorable whiskers have graced other indie titles like Fall Guys, this is its first dance with Among Us. As the game rings in its fifth year, all eyes are on Innersloth to see what surprises they’ll unleash next.
